          Anyone willing to cut and paste a copy here for those of us non-Facebookers? With a recipe name like that it has potential!

            1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
            Wisk together and bring to a boil.

              Doesn't seem like enough figs for a whole bottle of merlot. I guess you cook the water out of it. I have a good recipe for balsamic fig jam and it is way less liquid and I cook it much longer. Is it very liquidy?

                I was at a party this year and one of many food offerings was a jar of fig jam. I forget the brand? It was really good, and no cloves, vanilla, or cinnamon I could taste. It had a strong figgy flavor. I read the little pamphlet attached and it was made from dried figs, wow! I need to make so dried fig jam, I could not stop eating it.

                  I'd been looking for a way to cook and use up the frozen Trader Joe figs I bought. They seemed like they'd only find use in a recipe with some spices so I made up this one and cleared my freezer of those two bags. I put up a couple of small jars that are setting in my fridge as I type. Did some taste testing and am looking forward to more than just the spoon tastings (pretty good!) I had before I jarred them up. Thanks again newnandawg.

                    Oh yes it sounds grand. Just dreaming of enough figs to make some. Hello to Greg and few other people I know. Jodi here from Camp Verde AZ. Serious fig addiction, beginning stages. Maybe the worst stage as there are all these cuttings and no figs yet. Sigh. Warmly, from AZ although it is snowing right now, Jodi

                    Hi Jodi. I can feel your pain concerning cuttings and plants but no figs to show for it yet. I've got some RDB and Adriatic JH cuttings that are coming along really well though, so I hope to taste something in a year (maybe this one) What are the cuttings you are growing?

                      Thanks everyone. I am still trying to overcome my forum fobias and fig-uring out how to make and keep up with the posts. I started with a few common figs from the local nursery and Home Depot. Not knowing the extent of the fig possibilities. As I was researching about getting the trees I have and some that I know in the neighborhood, to ripen more figs, I came across the fig forums. Then reading about all the varieties, propagation, etc. along with meeting a lady with an amazing IBT (she let me have cuttings) it was all over. I now have 3 trees in ground, five 7gallon trees, a dozen or so 1 gallon, 12 figlets newly rooted and leafing out in recycled pop bottles and a 70 gallon tub filled with cuttings in bags. It is up to 57 varieties that are trying to make a home with me here in Camp Verde Az. Crazy. And the most fun I have had in years. I met a man in Phoenix with 120 varieties in 2 years. Wow. And I do have more of my friend Daisy's IBT to share/trade with anyone who might be interested in that variety. Happy figging everyone, and thank you for the welcomes.
